ST SWITHUNS from HEDGEMEAD PARK -BATH
Painted this in two sessions, just as leafy buds were opening in April. I wanted to try catching something of the freshness of the Spring light. Painted over a couple of hours to start, from 2.00 till 4.00; it is extraordinary how swiftly and radically the scene changes with almost opposite light and shade effects on the buildings. The final result indicates the day at about 3.30/4.0pm
